The Middle Way - poem

a growing list

between porridge too hot, and too cold

a bed too large, and too small

a drink too little, and a drink too much

between dependency and independence

between living as a householder or as a monk

between not exercising and exercising

between dessert and longevity

between being together

and being alone

like a pilot flying a plane

we watch our instruments

we adjust our pitch, our yaw,

our direction, our attitude

we choose that which

is skillful to keep

flying well
